SEAL QUALITY TESTING SYSTEM MONITORS SEAL-AND-PEEL STRENGTH
Proseal launched a unique seal quality testing system that enables food processors to determine the ideal seal-and-peel strength for individual products. The new ProTest solution is an automated lid-peeling device that measures and reports the resistance offered by the film as it separates from the tray during the moment of lid peeling. This provides relevant data to determine if the seal strength is the most user-friendly while remaining suitable for the product’s lifecycle. ProTest retains, displays and outputs test data, up to five test results, and can handle the vast majority of trays currently used in the market with diagonal diameters from 25-380mm in any shape. ProTest’s “Peelability Metrics” explain the four different stages involved in removing a film from the tray, and generates results on a 12-inch high-definition touchscreen.
